Have just started to learn to play mandolin again - well for the first time really, previous attempt was not a success. Our friend Jackie wants to do the same with guitar so we're teaming up. Plan is to learn a song a week, starting with 3 simple chords. First song: 'freefallin' by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers - simple chords, slow pace, and a fine song. Pic is from the TP gig at Knebworth which I went to back in the day with my buddy Mike.

I love this my friend.
I can see it all now at next year's GB festival... not only will you be appearing on some wondrous celebrity panel... and advising people about setting up small missionary communities... and giving them the breadth of your own personal experience... and maybe providing an opportunity for people to experience quiet contemplation... and you being a DJ again (return by popular demand etc!)... but you will be headlining on the main stage too!
When do they start selling tickets?!
I'll be there!
I'm very envious - after being given a piano by my employers (about 30 years ago!) and thinking I would just be able able to sit down and improvise something... and failing REALLY badly, I now realise that I don't have the patience and determination to do what you're doing.
Could you please learn the mandolin on my behalf please?
Thank you!
